Hyrule Warriors and Fantasy Life launch day DLC detailed

Free update and costumes, and a new island to explore.

Fantasy Life

Nintendo has announced launch day downloadable content for two of its upcoming titles. 

Hyrule Warriors (Wii U)

Consumers who buy the game will receive access to a free download that adds a new mode, a new weapon and the option to select music to add to the game. Nintendo bills this as “DLC” (which is technically correct), but it is in fact the update detailed earlier this week.

Additionally, consumers who pre-order the game at select retailers will receive a free download code for a set of alternate in-game costumes for Link and Zelda.

Users who register the game at Club Nintendo will also receive a free download code for a set of alternate costumes for Ganondorf.

All of these costumes will also be available for purchase on the Nintendo eShop sometime in the near future.

Hyrule Warriors is due out for Wii U on September 26 in North America and September 16 in Europe.

Fantasy Life (3DS)

An add-on pack or Fantasy Life called “Origin Island” will be available on launch day.

“Origin Island” offers a new area that is home to an ancient culture and powerful enemies, additional story content, new ranks to achieve in Life Classes, access to even more powerful equipment and two new varieties of pets to adopt: birds and dragons.

Fantasy Life is due out for 3DS on October 24 in North America and September 26 in Europe.
